THE SUNNY Cow­girls, singer-song­writ­ers Sophie and Ce­leste Clab­burn, have promised a sur­pris­ing and in­ti­mate per­for­mance at the Gayn­dah Show.

While the sis­ters can rock out a B&S ball, it was time, they said, to put the spot­light on their songs of life on the land in an acous­tic, heart­felt per­for­mance.

With no one sis­ter tak­ing the lead, Ce­leste said: “It’s nerve-wrack­ing though, this tour will be pretty unique and we may not ever do it again”.

“This is just Soph and I talk­ing about the songs, the in­flu­ences, and pretty much pre­sent­ing them as they were first writ­ten,” she said.

“It makes us pretty vul­ner­a­ble on stage, but it’s the time for us to do it.”

While new songs and a few sur­prises have been promised, the show will in­clude favourites from their five al­bums, in­clud­ing Six Pack Short, Sum­mer, and Green and Gold.

Green and Gold, writ­ten by Sophie and de­scribed as a love-song to Aus­tralia, was in­spired by a glance over Broome from an air­craft win­dow.

“I saw the blue ocean, the red dirt, the sun­set – a mil­lion dif­fer­ent colours – and I re­alised that we truly are liv­ing in­side a rain­bow, which be­came a recurring im­age in the song,” Sophie said.

The sis­ters, who were fi­nal­ists at this year’s Coun­try Mu­sic Awards of Aus­tralia, will be sup­ported by Jonny Tay­lor.

A fi­nal­ist in Aus­tralia’s Got Talent two years ago, Jonny has gone on to win sev­eral awards in­clud­ing best male artist in­Western Aus­tralia’s Coun­try Mu­sic Awards for 2013 and 2014.
